gouache, watercolor, and oil pastel - 4" x 6"

so i'm going to (quietly ; ) post some pages from the chartreuse journal... what i ended up doing was covering the pages that i wanted to paint on with book or magazine pages. glued them down with matte gel medium as i went along... about half the pages in the book have pogo prints and writing on them, and the other half i painted on. most of the faces are heavy on the white gouache!! the skin starts out as cream caran d'ache oil pastel, and evolves from there.

  1. So glad to see you are back ..... quietly or not. I missed you!! Your chartreuse journal must be bulging at the seams with treasures like these. She is so serene and the truth teller makes me smile.

  2. Beautiful Lynne. I've just bought some canvases for my little girl to play with. I think I'll use your idea of collaging and painting the background before she paints a picture. She'll really enjoy that! xxJ
